I hadn’t planned on stopping off at the Whispering Wall until the bar tender at Jacob’s Creek asked if we had already visited it on the Heritage Drive. As we hadn’t visited the wall yet, we decided we would stop off on the way to our house sit. The Whispering Wall is part of the Barossa Reservoir Dam, a curved wall stretching more than 100m, across which you can pass whispers. I hadn’t expected the whispers passed to be very clear at all (which is part of the reason I wasn’t pushing a visit to begin with) and so was very surprised when at the wall it felt like Jack and I were having a conversation stood next to each other, not at the opposite ends of the wall where we stood. Though it meant having to battle wind to get across the dam! If you are near the area of the Whispering Wall I highly recommend a visit, it is only a short visit but ended up being a highlight of our time in the Barossa Valley and there are plenty of picnic spots nearby so maybe take some lunch.
It was windy on the dam when Jack was stood there too… Apparently the beard is now so thick it is barely affected by the breeze.
